Radio Tray, minimal player for internet radioFiled under: Thoughts;
I quite like to hear Internet radio, but I think Rhythmbox, Amarok and Co. for much too powerful. If one really wants to hear ONLY radio via the internet, then it does not need a media player with database, lyrics, etc., can go no more out of sheer functionality. Interested parties should therefore look even radio tray.This little program will only play internet radio streams and saves resources significantly compared to Rhythmbox.
Once installed, the program has a nest in the tray. There are unfortunately not included radio stations, so you must first enter your own favorite stations. Right-clicking on the icon and “Config radios …” you open the station manager. There you can enter it via “Add” individual stations. A list of the URLs of many Internet radio stations can be found for example in the wiki of ubuntu. Alternatively, you can look out among you Surfmusik.de interesting fishing stations and the URL to the stream from the source code …
Radio tray you can under Debian, Ubuntu or Linux Mint install quite easily. The makers offer deb. In packages on Debian-based systems can be installed with a double click. You can find them on the project page at Sourceforge. After installation, you can program via the “Applications ->Sound & Median ->Radio Tray” start.
The program is still young and needs to be to some extent even translated. On Transifex there's already a project for translating radio tray. Who wants to follow the project, which is the blog of Radio Tray continuous information.
